A man is going viral for kicking a woman out of his hotel room when she refused to have sex with him after he paid $5,000 to fly her out.

In a viral video, a man explains the woman refused to have intimate relations with him even though he paid $5,000 for airline tickets, an Uber and the price of the hotel room.

The man was outraged because he communicated with her on Instagram for three months before booking her tickets.

There was a time when women would gladly have consensual sex for $20 and a Happy Meal. Nowadays, women expect a lot more.

They see Instagram models showing off handbags, designer shoes, homes, jewelry and cars - and they believe they should get that too.

The man in the video could have avoided the drama by asking one simple question: "You know what you're coming here for, right?"

If you don't ask the right question, then she won't know what you really want. It's a woman's prerogative to say no.

So have that conversation with her before you spend one thin dime on her. Tell her what your expectations are and ask her what her expectations are before you book an airline ticket.

Earlier this week, a troll went viral on Instagram after he/she claimed to be Nicki Minaj's "ex-assistant". The troll was so convincing that several celebrities responded to the alleged rapper's "ex-assistant" online.

The troll's post went viral and the story was picked up by mainstream media outlets, including Yahoo! News and Newsweek magazine.

An outraged Nicki shut down the allegations in a video after the post went viral.

"I am mind-blown that people are this f--king dumb, that people are believing that I got somebody that worked for me and now they spilling tea... It's not even that, it's that the tea sounds so f--king dumb. And for a person to believe it, you would have to be dumb. It's clearly a kid."

Megan F. Bettencourt, the woman whose profile photo was stolen by the troll, took to Twitter on Wednesday, August 3, to explain that she had nothing to do with the drama.

"To be clear: I have never had a secret life as the 'ex-assistant' of @NICKIMINAJ," she wrote. "Someone stole my photo and used it in a fake account. Fraudulent impersonation wasn't the way I envisioned being mentioned in @Newsweek, but hey, scammers gonna scam."

Nicki apparently felt bad for Megan. The rapper offered her a job in a post on Twitter.

"Ok you know TF what? well hey, if you ever need a job hit me up. I feel bad. but hey cheers to Newsweek! Always a sliver living. i-i guess?"

An Iowa weather station has apologized after a racial slur was aired during a local Weather Channel TV broadcast.

The graphic containing the n-word went viral on Twitter after it "accidentally" aired during the Des Moines-based Weather Channel's "Local on the 8s" segment Thursday.

"I've blurred it, but I'm pretty sure you can figure out what it said," tweeted journalist Matthew Keys.

The graphic read: "Hello Des Moines, This is your weather my N----s."

The reaction was swift on Twitter. However, the Weather Channel denies that the racial slur originated with the station.

"This did not originate with us, and we are in the process of investigating it further," a spokesperson told Keys, in a tweet.

One television news expert backed up Matthews that the mistake originated with TWC.

"TWC has computer units at cable headends to produce the local on the 8s, and a rogue cable employee must've messed with the files and caused it to say that," wrote one Twitter user.

TWC has since deleted the slur and apologized for the incident on Facebook.

"A graphic during the Weather Channel cable network's 'Local on the 8s' presentation in Des Moines last evening included a racial slur," the post read. "We removed this graphic as soon as we learned of it. This did not originate with us, and we are in the process of investigating it further. We apologize to our viewers."

Keke Palmer (L) dismissed comparisons to fellow actress Zendaya Coleman, who many believe is paid more than Palmer because of her skin color.

Palmer responded after a tweet comparing the "Nope" star to Zendaya went viral over the weekend.

The tweet read:

"I'd like someone to do a deep-drive on the similarities and differences between Keke Palmer and Zendaya's careers. This may be one of the clearest examples of how colorism plays out in Hollywood. They were both child-stars, but their mainstream popularity is very different."

Palmer is Black, while Zendaya is biracial.

Palmer, 28, whose movie "Nope" opened with $44 million at the box office, responded.

"A great example of colorism is to believe I can be compared to anyone. I'm the youngest talk show host ever. The first Black woman to star in her own show on Nickelodeon, & the youngest & first Black Cinderella on broadway. I'm an incomparable talent. Baby, THIS, is Keke Palmer."

She continued:

"I've been a leading lady since I was 11 years old. I have over 100+ credits, and currently starring in an original screenplay that's the number one film at the box office #NOPE. I've had a blessed career thus far, I couldn't ask for more but God continues to surprise me."

Palmer, who made her acting debut in Barbershop 2: Back in Business (2004), is also a singer/songwriter who has released 2 studio albums, three EPs, three mixtapes and 28 singles.

Zendaya, 25, who starred in 2021's "Spider-Man: No Way Home", did not respond to the controversy.

She became the youngest actress to win an Emmy for outstanding lead actress in a drama series in 2020 for her role in the TV series "Euphoria."

Tiara Mack, Rhode Island's youngest senator, was suspended from TikTok for posting a video of herself twerking for votes.

In the video, the 28-year-old politician twerks awkwardly while in a handstand.

Mack described the reaction to her twerking video as "misogyny, classism and racism" in a phone interview on Wednesday.

"My behavior on my Twitter, Instagram and TikTok are consistent with a young millennial who is in office and challenging norms," Mack said.

"I'm showing that leadership looks different and welcoming people into the many different facets of my life."

But not everyone agrees with her message. Twitter users called Mack's behavior disgraceful and shameful and they said she had no business being a state senator.

Mack's TikTok account was restored on Wednesday after being suspended on Tuesday.

"My community stands in overwhelming support of me," Mack said, referring to the LGBT+ community. "They know exactly what these attacks are and what these attacks can do, especially for a queer person of color."

Mack, who was elected in 2020, said the video was "a way to show that elected officials can be silly and have fun and enjoy a day off."

She believes the TikTok suspension was politically motivated after she proposed a bill last year that would require Rhode Island schools to provide sex education to children that "affirmatively recognize pleasure based sexual relations, different sexual orientations and be inclusive of same-sex relationships."

"I see behind me, that kid, Christian Walker, visibly losing his sh-t in the car... This Starbucks is covered in gay flags, trans flags, like, American remixed gay flags. I see him losing his sh-t the whole time."

Meanwhile, Christian also posted a video in which he offers to buy an American flag for the Starbucks location. The confrontation with Kehlani occurred after he questioned the Starbucks barista about the an American flag.

She said she got to the window and informed the Starbucks workers that the guy behind her was a "Republican Trump supporter" who "has a habit of harassing" the LGBT+ community.

"They're like, yeah, I know that kid... I'm like, he's a f---ing as-hole."

You know what happened next.

Both Kehlani and Christian are members of the LGBT+ community who have differing opinions.

Joe Gorga finally evicted a tenant who was four years behind on his rent. According to TMZ, the deadbeat tenant owes Gorga $50,000 in back rent.

"The Real Housewives of New Jersey" star went viral last month after his tenant recorded him screaming and ranting. Gorga was outraged because his tenant owes him $50,000 in back rent.

"You had nowhere to live and I f---ing gave you a f---ing house," said Gorga in the viral video in June.

However, the man reminded Gorga that the state paid his rent during the pandemic. He said he only owed back rent from January 2022 until June.
 

 
Gorga finally got his day in court this week. A judge agreed that the tenant had to pay up or get out, TMZ reported.

The RHONJ star was recording as he and a sheriff's deputy arrived at the Hawthorne, NJ residence armed with eviction papers on Tuesday night.

"This is what happens when you don't pay your rent; you get locked out," said Gorga. "Gotta pay your rent or get locked the f--k out."

The tenant appeared shocked when the reality TV star and a sheriff showed up with the eviction papers in hand.

A woman who was in the apartment started crying.

TMZ reports that the tenant's father rushed over to beg Gorga for more time to pay, but Gorga was unsympathetic.

According to TMZ, the tenant, a former restaurant manager, lost his job during Covid-19 in 2020.

Gorga's rep insists his client has a heart and doesn't like setting tenants out on the curb, but this situation has gone on for four years.

Kehlani angered social media influencer Christian Walker by calling him an "a--hole," so he got out of his car and confronted her.

He captioned the TikTok video:

"This LOVING TOLERANT INCLUSIVE woman told the baristas I was 'that a--hole from tiktok.' So yes, I got out the car."

Christian, whose father is NFL great Herschel Walker, said, "Ma'am, ma'am, you don't need to tell baristas that I'm an a--hole because I have an opinion. Get your drink and go away... Well, guess what? You're the a--hole... If you can have an opinion, I can have an opinion, ma'am..."

"I can have an opinion like everybody else," Christian told the singer. "Why are you entitled to an opinion and not me?"

Kehlani can be heard in the video telling baristas that Christian, "Doesn't have to be obnoxious".

Christian (right) captioned the video on Twitter:

"This mediocre singer that everyone's forgotten about, Kehlani, told my baristas at Starbucks that I was an "a**hole" and to be "safe around me." Well, I set her straight.

I'm tired of these fake woke people being rude to everyone and acting like they’re the good ones."

Black Twitter dragged Christian for simply defending himself.

One person tweeted:

"Hands would have been laid on his bitch a--, he's a whole man acting like a b-tch harassing a woman while she gets coffee @ChristianWalk1r
your a b-tch try that sh-t with a grown man, don't you have 20 brothers and sisters you need to go meet focus on that."

Meanwhile, Starbucks Coffee is closing 16 locations in inner cities due to crime and drug use in the restrooms.

An Albany, NY, TV anchor who was suspended for slurring her words during a live news broadcast is defending herself.

Heather Kovar was suspended from her job by CBS affiliate WRGB CBS 6 after she slurred her words during the 6 p.m broadcast on Saturday, July 9.

Viewers were left concerned and surprised as Kovar struggled to string together a coherent sentence.

She was wide-eyed and jittery while reporting on a natural gas explosion in Oklahoma.

"Like, I was telling you this morning, if you watched us this morning starting at 6 a.m., 7 a.m., I told you, you know what? Today, what a beautiful day outside! It is just amazing. And so, a great time for outdoor music."

Later in the broadcast, she seemed to complain about working a "double shift" at the station that day.

A video of the incident went viral on Saturday night. She tweeted on Saturday saying she would return to the air by Sunday morning.

CBS 6 confirmed Kovar's suspension in a statement on Monday. "Heather Kovar has been suspended pending our internal investigation. We have no further comment at this time."

She was replaced by Greg Floyd, the station's weekday evening anchor.

In a statement to the Times Union on Sunday, Kovar said she was "sleep-deprived and exhausted" after working a double shift.

She added: "On Friday, I notified the station I would not be renewing my contract which expires July 31. Saturday I was scheduled to work the early morning 6 a.m. shift and the evening shift. I was sleep-deprived and exhausted."

Rhode Island's youngest Black senator embarrassed and humiliated her ancestors by releasing a TikTok video of herself twerking for votes.

Most insulting to many was the fact that Mack did such a horrible job twerking. Now she's complaining about the public backlash on social media.

Mack defended her actions on Twitter.com by blaming the news media for her problems.

"Damn. Twerking upside down really makes the conservative, unhinged internet accounts pop off on a Monday. can the media cover any policy wins had by the youngest Black state senator in Rhode Island? can the media also cover the 10+ bills I sponsored that the @RISenate never scheduled for a hearing? As a Black, queer woman you all should know the answer. It’s no. Let's them carry on their narrative. Me? I'm going to be joyful, free, and unbothered."

Who is Tiara Mack? And why did she think releasing a twerking video was a good idea in this political climate?

Ms. Mack is an educated 28-year-old Democrat who was among a group of young Black LGBT+ lawmakers who made history when they were elected to public office in 2020. She assumed office on Jan. 5, 2021.

Other LGBT+ lawmakers elected in 2020 include Kim Jackson, a lesbian in the Georgia State Senate; Mauree Turner, a lesbian Muslim elected to the Oklahoma House of Representatives; and Michele Rayner-Goolsby, a lesbian in Florida's House of Representatives.

Mack, who is openly lesbian, was raised in Georgia and South Carolina by a single mother who worked as a teacher and struggled financially.

Mack moved to Providence, Rhode Island in 2012 and earned a BA in public health in 2016.

By now you've seen the viral video of a woman going off on her son's father for bringing only his son a McDonald's meal.

The mother-of-four was outraged that her son's father didn't bring enough McDonald's food for her other three kids.

The debate continues to rage on social media, as men and women choose sides along gender lines.

Christian Petersen/Getty Images

4-time world champion boxer Adrien Broner weighed in on the controversy. "I got time today," the father-of-six said in a YouTube video.

"In all reality, I say she's wrong, because at the end of the day, that ain't that ni**a kids. He ain't on child support for them mf kids. So, you can't expect him to go feed yo' babies. Ok, y'all was together. Ok, then that's different... But once y'all break up, that sh*t is over with. His only responsibility is his kid. Real talk."

Adrien said he would've fed the other children out of the goodness of his heart.

However, he pointed out that all men aren't required to feed another man's children.

He shamed the baby mama, saying she shouldn't have children by multiple fathers.

Lisa, a single mom of four, went viral after she recorded herself throwing away her son's McDonald's meal because his father didn't bring enough food for all of her kids.

Lisa didn't expect the backlash that followed after she tried to "expose" her baby's daddy for bringing lunch for his son, but not her other three kids.

On Wednesday, she recorded a TikTok video responding to the public backlash.

She explained that the father of her youngest child fed her other 3 children McDonald's while they were together. But after they broke up, he stopped treating her other children to Happy Meals.

Now she's bitter because he brings McDonald's meals for his son - who he's responsible for.

"All my other kids knew him," she explained.

"He was buying them McDonald's when we were together. My kids have to go through a transition of our break up as well... So now my kids have to see only one of their siblings get McDonald's and not the rest of them?"

She continued:

"And they know it's coming from you because, of course... me and you used to be together. They used to see you, you used to do it for them. But now you don't want to do that for them anymore. Like, to me that's petty. That's petty, like, it's not fair. You're not gonna give one child McDonald's and not all the other kids McDonald's."

She added:

"I don't care what everybody else have to say about it. Y'all could judge me. Oh well, I could be the villain, but I said what I said! Like, if you can't bring everybody McDonald's, then can't nobody have McDonald's then, periodt!"

The Internet is debating a viral video that shows "Lisa," a mother-of-four, arguing with one of her baby daddies for bringing a McDonald's meal for his son, but nothing for her other 3 kids.

Rather than thank him for providing for his son, she threatens to "expose" him for not feeding her other kids.

"It ain't more than enough food in that bag for everybody," she yells, as he arrives with a McDonald's meal and a drink for his son.

"That don't look enough for all my kids!" she says. "What about my other kids?"

"What about your other kids? They ain't my kids," he responded.

"But them yo' kid's siblings though," she snaps back. "My other kids finna be left out..."

"You didn't feed them?" he asked her.

At some point, he asked Lisa to send his son downstairs to the car to eat his sandwich. He said the boy could eat in his room - away from the other children - or eat in his car.

He also told her that he is only responsible for his child, and she should call the other fathers to feed their own kids.

After some intense back and forth arguing, Lisa grabbed the bag and drink out of his hands and tossed them on the ground.

Her frustrated baby daddy got back in his car and left. Hopefully, he drove straight to the courthouse to file for custody of his son.

The video proves why Lisa is raising her four children as a single mother.

Dozens of bloggers fell for this fake headline from The Atlantic over the weekend. If you saw the headline, and believed it was legit, you were not alone

81 million voters cringed as their President, Joe Biden took a spill while bike riding near his home in Delaware on Saturday.

The White House said Biden was doing "OK", and he walked out of church on Sunday morning with a spring in his step to prove he was not hurt.

AFP via Getty Images

But photos and videos of Biden's dramatic fall spread across the Internet like a tidal wave. Within an hour, Biden's big fall was the number 1 trending topic on Twitter.

Memes soon followed, as Biden's supporters slammed the Secret Service for allowing the President to ride a bike without training wheels.

Actor/comedian Terrence K. Williams tweeted: "80 Million people voted for a man who can't walk and needs Training Wheels on his BIKE?"

The mainstream media downplayed Biden's fall, while news networks cut off the viral video before Biden hit the ground.

But the headline that caught our attention was an alleged screenshot from The Atlantic that read: "The Heroism of Biden's Bike Fall.".

The sub headline read: "The President gracefully illustrated an important lesson for all Americans - when we fall, we must get back up."

AFP via Getty Images

The writer hailed Biden as a hero and an example of someone who picks himself up and dusts himself off, because nothing can keep a good man down.

In other words, even though he's 79, and has difficulty maintaining his balance on the way to the podium at the White House, Biden was a hero for falling off his bike and getting up again without breaking a hip.

A search on The Atlantic's website did not turn up the actual article.

According to The Associated Press, "The Atlantic did not publish such an article."

"No such story or headline can be found on The Atlantic's website, or in archived versions of the site from Saturday captured by the Internet Archive's Wayback Machine. The most recent edition of the Atlantic Daily online is from Friday, and the outlet's website says it is published "weekday evenings." Source

Anna Bross, a spokesperson for The Atlantic, confirmed in an email to the AP that the viral headline is fake.

"I can verify that this is not a real article from The Atlantic, and is indeed fabricated," Bross wrote.

A Raleigh, North Carolina pest control company is offering $2,000 to release 100 roaches inside your home to test a "specific pest control technique."

The Pest Informer is looking for 5 to 7 homeowners to participate in the study to help the company "gauge how effective" their new treatment is, WDRB reported.

The news went viral on social media last week.

ThePestInformer.com received hundreds of applications from households across the United States. The company will choose seven homes for the 30-day cockroach elimination trial, WRAL-TV reported.

People who are allergic to roaches are advised not to apply.

Applicants must be U.S. residents; 21 or older and own their own home, or have written permission from the owner. Applicants must also give permission to film the process, WDRB reported.
